Lets see your AR15 pistols.

Here is my PSA AR15 Pistol. Upper and Lower are both PSA. It has an Anderson Bolt Assmebly. Magpul rear sights and Primary Arms Advanced Micro Dot RDS.



I have another PSA pistol kit to match this one at home. I grabbed a Matech and a USMC labeled Knights Armament flip up elevation adjustable rear sight from Ebay recently.

Does anyone know of quality US maker of the below rear sight? DPMS used to make a good one. Most out there are Chinese rattle traps.

It took a bit to get it just where I wanted it. CBC/Hera upper. Hogue grip, AFG.
I would take it into harm's way without hesitation. It has been very reliable, eating anything that I feed it.

I tried a binary trigger but moved it to another AR as I found that I didn't need it. The original trigger is an Enhanced from Palmetto and they did a really good job on it. Nitride BCG with enhanced extractor.

The Vortex sight has an etched reticle. It lights up but I almost never use it. It is nice to have it available.

The Palmetto wrist brace gives it perfect balance, at least for me.

A 5.56 and a 300 Blackout. Both built from PSA lowers with a Shockwave Blade, and 10.5" PSA uppers. Vortex 1X prism on the 5.56, Primary Arms 3x prism on the 300. Both have engraved ejection port covers so that if someone else in the family is shooting, they don't get them mixed up.

I plan on putting the SB Tactical SBA3 on the 300.

The 5.56 gun stays in the jeep, and the 300 hangs by the front door and is carried when patrolling the homestead.




Showing how I made the sling mod for the 300. The hole in the brace is so it can hang on a hook by the door.

I've looked and I couldn't seem to find a better one than the Daniel Defense: https://danieldefense.com/components...ear-sight.html Disclaimer: I don't have it so I can't make a judgement of it.

But it's aluminum and more like an A1 style vs A2. They call it an A1.5. IDK if there is an elevation adjustment.



For more of an A2 style, some people chop a Colt carry handle. (I've gotten a Colt carry handle on ebay for $50.) That might be the way I'd do it.

Anderson Lower, KAK brace and tube, Davidson Defense 3 lb trigger and 10.5" upper and BCG/CH, added a linear comp after the pic. About $400 all in.

Edit to mention...the trigger and pins was $100 of that cost.

Seems the PSA 10.5 kits are popular, for under $300 for a complete pistol how can you not have a few?
My last one, the carry handle was a flea market $5 find so the total was $294 because of the $29 lower I had from a shop that went bankrupt.
Magpul grip was a freebie from a local shop that a customer returned.

Looks like LMT picked up the A2 sight and wants $155 for it...

Think I'll look for a surplus carry handle and cut it myself.

Now I need some slings and flash light mounts.

With those handguards, you're limited in flashlight options. I got this off off of Botach....

https://www.botach.com/kley-zion-bayonet-lug-mount/

Works well and is low profile.





The offset light mount is also Kley-Zion....

https://www.botach.com/kley-zion-off...shlight-rings/


If you look close in the first pic I posted above, youll see a Streamlight TLR-1 mounted on the rail mount of the gun on the left..

That looks pretty slick.
I was searching around and came upon this spendy flashlight mount:

I have a cheap VTac light mount that would work nicely with yours.

Maybe I should just put a magpul moe hand guard on them.

I havent seen that one before. Its pretty slick. It is a tad salty. Not that the Kley mount isnt either, for what it is.

By the time youre done "adding on" just a couple of simple things, youre almost looking at half the cost of the base gun.

I have AR's with basic handguards and railed handguards, and really prefer the "old school" look and feel, especially with the smaller guns.

PSA's handguards are also more oval, which I hadnt seen before, and I really like them. They, like the standard handguards, are just kind of limiting if you want to hang stuff off of them. Not that I really want to, I actually prefer them pretty basic.

Although one thing I have really come to like and want, are the Magpul B.A.D. levers.

Yeah they are pretty sweet. Just yesterday I ran some Tula steel cased bi-metal through my 5.56, teaching my daughter how to shoot it. I've only run a couple hundred rounds through that one, but I've had no problems from the first shot to the last. It goes bang every time I pull the trigger and honestly, that's all I want. I mean, they just work!

And the 4150CMV nitrided barrel is pretty damn awesome for the price you pay!

My favorite with the pistols is with an A2 front fixed sight and drop in handguard. I had a Colt carry handle on my 5.56 for awhile so it looked a lot like yours and I just loved the look and KISS function.

Got two in 5.56 with Shockwave Technologies braces, 7.5" and 10.5". Both right now are hosting .22 conversion kits. Red dot on one, irons on the other.

Saw this over on Ar15.com - Kerm-Lock light mount for use with standard A2/M4 stocks. Easy on and off. $59.95 - might have to try one or 4.



http://www.kermlock.com/item/kerm-lo...l-rail-adaptor

$59.95

The Patent Pending Kerm-Lockô was designed by active duty law enforcement officers, for law enforcement officers that use an AR15, M16, or M4 model rifle equipped with standard A2 or M4 style plastic hand guards, and need a way to quickly and easily attach a lighting system platform during deployment, then remove it upon completion of the deployment.

The Kerm-Lockô Tactical Lighting Platform was initially designed for the officer or deputy with a department issued rifle, because when it comes to equipment that may save my life, or the life of another, I am very serious about its function and reliability. The only equipment I truly trust is the equipment I own or personally maintain. The Kerm-Lockô was designed exactly with this in mind. The Kerm-Lockô is a temporary rail system that attaches securely in seconds to the rifle's hand guard via the top vent holes, and locks into place using a cam lever compression system, providing a temporary rail platform for a light source of the operators choosing.




Anyone have a recommendation for a sub $50ish flashlight?

I'll post pictures later as I have an AK pistol, and a couple AR pistols (5.56 and 300BO) along with a few 9mm variations.

The downside is the short barrel and muzzle blast; they're loud without a suppressor. Ballistics-wise, they are far superior to pistol calibers at the same short ranges (5-50 meters). They provide a taste of an SBR for future consideration without the registration hassle, and they give a much more potent pistol option if traveling across state lines.

I don't see them as a replacement to a CCW or service handgun, nor a replacement of a carbine or rifle; however, they offer a good option to augment for certain circumstances.

Having one (or three) provides far more advantages than disadvantages as long as the other basis are covered. Plus, they're both cool and fun

In Ohio they can be carried loaded in the car if you have a concealed carry permit, since they are handguns. You can carry loaded mags with a concealed carry but they can't be loaded into a full sized AK or AR.

Same here in PA, I always make sure I have mine on the front seat when I am forced to go to Pittsburgh.
